New York City's Longwave moves beyond its Strokes connection and sharpen its glossy, slick, shoegazing guitar work for a stunning second album, The Strangest Things. Echoes of classic U2, Echo & the Bunnymen, and Swervedriver resonate throughout, but the maddening double guitar work of Steve Schlitz and Shannon Ferguson singles out the album's overall fullness. Schlitz's magnetic vocal warmth is a nice fit to the band's lush, melodic distortion, giving producer Dave Fridmann much clearance to capture Longwave's expansive, epic-like sound.

On Longwave's excellent The Strangest Things, singer/guitarist Steve Schiltz and guitarist Shannon Ferguson start with the verities of goth - a haunting bassline, guitars circling in arpeggios - before loosening torrents of postpunk noise. It's a refreshing combination. In many ways, Longwave are like early Catherine Wheel fronted by Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong - elegant noise yoked to adenoidal plea. I saw this in the store, looked at the dummy sticker and saw that Dave Friedmann was part of the production, and I took a chance and bought it. I'm glad. Like the Strokes, Longwave are clearly influenced by 70s bands like Television. The comparisons with the Strokes end with influences though. There is a beauty in listening to an unhyped band that simply craft good rocks songs about heartbreak, disillusioment, and depair. Longwave is such a band.
